BRUSSELS, January 22. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia's permanent representative to the European Union Vladimir Chizhov said participants in the so-called Euromaidan, a newly coined term for ongoing protests and civil unrest in Ukraine's capital Kiev, have no idea of the content of the draft Ukraine-EU association agreement.
"For example, many think that after Ukraine signs the agreement, it will have a visa-free regime with the EU or that the European Union will open its garners to pour golden rain on the troubled Ukrainian economy. They have such illusions," the Russian envoy said.
However, Chizhov noted that a majority of the interviews concerned the early stage of protests. "They are not giving interviews now, but tend to throw bottles with incendiary compound and use other paraphernalia of "peaceful rallies," he said.
